I said they use the same faith as I, but because I believe the evidence is more logical for a Creator than not it takes more faith to believe
atheism over creationism.
Your conflating atheism and science into one and the same thing.
Atheism is simply the rejection of belief in a deity or deities.
Not all atheists accept the big bang theory.
Many do, but most of those that do accept that it is simply the best model we have currently
- the one most consistent with the observed
evidence, with the view that this explanation could change in future should better information come to light.
Some people just don't know enough about it, some couldn't care less.
Furthermore, not all theists reject big bang theory. In fact a great proportion accept it.
Your real argument isn't with atheism.
It's with a particular theory, in a particular branch of science (cosmology etc).

See that's why this passage is just nonsense -
I would also like to note that many Atheist claim a mass of energy outside our understanding of time is what caused the Big Bang...Oh so
its outside this realm of existence and has the ability to create an entirely new dimension, and does so randomly, and we got lucky and landed the
star dust that created us landed in the right place? Well that takes a lot more faith than saying something with intelligence put that course of
action into existence and that is why we exist. You are assuming that their is no intelligent life outside this realm of existence, but yet you
can assume that their was energy outside this realm of existence...if it was just a mass of energy(Spirit) could it not have a will?
People who support a particular hypothesis
about the big bang theory (i.e, not atheists
as written completely eroneously, but ppl who
accept what may or may not be the scientific consensus (which could include theists
)) in general do not profess to claim absolute knowledge of
anything, it's just a theory. It's the currently accepted model, that is all.
Science is never absolute. There is always uncertainty in every figure, every assertion, every hypothesis.
Instead of strawmanning atheism with ridiculous dishonest and false histrionics like "It takes more faith to be an atheist", you should be writing
letters to the cosmologists coming up with hypothesis about a theory which you happen to disagree with.
